To include a shortcut (or shortcuts), pass a parameter: {{Guideline|WP:SHORT}}

To add a sort key to a guideline, add the parameter: {{Guideline|Sortkey=<sort key name>}}.

Up to five shortcuts can be used, with or without a sortkey: {{Guideline|WP:SHORT|WP:SHORT2|WP:SHORT3|WP:SHORT4|WP:SHORT5|Sortkey=<sort key name>}}.

New guidelines require approval

If you're writing a new guideline, or substantially revising one, please remember to give the community significant time to consider your proposal. See WP:PROPOSAL for the current best practice on advertising proposals.
